Honda CR-V: Perfect for the Winter Commute | Luther Mankato Honda

Are you one of the many who commute into Minneapolis on snowy and icy roads? It can make for an intensely long and uncomfortable drive. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can tackle dicey winter roads and look great while doing it, Luther Mankato Honda suggests you test drive the 2016 Honda CR-V

What makes the Honda CR-V, for sale in Mankato, so popular among Minneapolis commuters? We have heard time and time again from our customers that they like the CR-V’s performance, comfort and fuel-efficiency. These features make for one well-rounded SUV. 

Below, read more details about the CR-V’s most enticing features. 

If you’re commuting from Mankato to Minneapolis, you need a vehicle that performs. For a small SUV, the CR-V’s 185-horsepower engine is quite impressive. It’s a 2.4-liter, direct-injection engine that helps cut down your trips to the gas station. 

In addition to power, its engineering technology includes Real Time AWD, hill start assist and continuously variable transmission. In adverse road conditions, Real Time AWD grips the road if you lose traction. When you have to take your foot off the brake to push the gas on an incline, hill start assist makes the transition smoother by maintaining brake-line pressure. 

Continuously Variable Transmission is at the heart of the CR-V’s smooth ride. It creates smooth acceleration and better efficiency without forfeiting performance. 

Whether there’s snow on the ground or the summer sun is high in the sky, everyone will stay the perfect temperature with the CR-V’s dual-zone climate control. 

When you’re not commuting to your job or driving clients around, you’ll have no problem loading up the CR-V with your weekend getaway gear thanks to the 37.2 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row. If you need more space, fold down the row and get 70.9 cubic feet. 

Everyone needs to haul long items from time to time. The job is not too big for the CR-V. You can easily personalize the 60/490 split rear seat back to meet your needs.

The CR-V is the commuter’s dream vehicle thanks to its fuel economy ratings. It delivers 27 MPG in the city and 34 on the highway, for 30 MPG combined.
